Hey guys, I'm getting ready to do this on my pop-top! I am leaning towards painting the inner side of the MaxxAir lid so that light doesn't pass through the white plastic. This got me thinking, is the white plastic they use UV-resistant? To those that have had this installed over a year, has the white plastic yellowed at all? If so, I might as well paint the exterior as well.
I also wanted to share this DIY guide
to better prep the MaxxAir fan for drainage, which I'm thinking about following although I don't really see 1) how water would be a problem in the first drainage spots he adds (above the rubber seal), and 2) how water would get to the second drainage spot he adds (circuit board), as long as the rubber gasket is good.
I had an idea for a different way of filling in the "valleys" on the old pop-tops. Have you guys ever used JB Weld PlasticWeld
? I used that syringe epoxy to re-enforce my waste water tank pipe that was cracking around the flange and leaking. It's been rock solid for a year now.
Or perhaps this JB Weld PlasticWeld Epoxy Putty
I suppose it would be best to stick to fiberglass since that's what the pop-top is actually made of, but I have no experience with it and it's not like I'll be sanding down past the Raptor Liner AND the original gel coat to get to the fiberglass to build it up. Thoughts?
